According to Matt Lynley of Business Insider, Twitter’s acquisition of Summify marks a clear change in strategy. Summify analyzes and curates social media data, creating personalized news digests.
But lately, McCue’s been working on a startup called Flipboard. Flipboard, like Summify or even Twitter’s own “discover” feature, is a tool that automatically scans social media sites and curates them for easy consumption.
Twitter is going into competition with one of its board members.
